Important Information About .RU Domains

Posted By on March 3, 2010

Due to a sudden change in the .RU Registry registration policy, every holder of a .RU domain name is now required to provide supporting documents to prove their identity.
If the domain name is registered under a legal person name (company), one of the following documents is required:

1 a certificate of registration


2  an excerpt from the commercial register

More generally any official document confirming that the holder of this domain name is a legal entity duly registered in its state of incorporation.

If your domain name is registered under a natural person name (individual), one of the following document is required:

1. a passport copy


2. an ID card copy

Please note that the documents have to be readable, personal details and date of issue have to be obvious.

Also note that website copies or screenshots are not considered as a valid document.

The document can be emailed to us or faxed to us on
